UOIT to take over local theatre

November 10, 2009

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology announced Monday it will assume ownership and operation of the historic Regent Theatre in downtown Oshawa, while Regent Square Property Corp will construct a new 30,000-square-foot, 5-storey building on the undeveloped property immediately north of the theatre and lease it to UOIT for classroom, lab, office, and other learning areas. Set to open in September 2010, the new facility is part of a comprehensive plan to move UOIT's Faculty of Criminology, Justice, and Policy Studies to downtown Oshawa. UOIT News Release
